Arcese relies on the POWER CURTAIN PLUS from Schmitz Cargobull

The POWER CURTAIN PLUS body is not only prepared for tyre transport

April 2022 – Whether by road, rail, air or sea – with over 50 years of experience, the Italian transport and logistics company Arcese can always offer its customers the optimal transport solution. Five new Schmitz Cargobull S.CS MEGA curtainsider semi-trailers with POWER CURTAIN PLUS, which are used especially for the transport of loose and unpacked goods, recently reinforced the state-of-the-art vehicle fleet of the Italian transport experts. 

The flexible curtainsider body with the robust tarpaulin gets by without support laths and is also certified for tyre transport. Due to the structural stability and strength of the tarpaulins, which are reinforced with aramid belts and integrated steel wires, the body can withstand the high stresses arising during the transport of beverages or unpacked goods, especially when cornering. “The POWER CURTAIN PLUS allows us to transport unpacked loads by road and rail – such as tyres which tend to cause the tarpaulin to bulge outwards when cornering,” explains Carlo La Corte, fleet manager at Arcese Group. “With the S.CS MEGA with POWER CURTAIN PLUS, we can rely on the safety standards and reduce loading times.” 

 

The flexible curtainsider body ist also certified for tyre transport

The S.CS MEGA curtainsider semi-trailer with POWER CURTAIN PLUS is not only certified as per DIN EN 12642 Code XL, DL Guideline 9.5 together with a Beverage Certificate, but is also certified and has additional equipment for tyre transport. The strength of the side wall is generated by an easy-to-use lever mechanism that acts on supporting bars embedded in the tarpaulin and pre-tensions the tarpaulin. In this way, dimensionally unstable goods remain safely protected during form-fit loading. The tarpaulin body is also distinguished by easy handling, as there is no need for support laths or diagonal bracing of the load.

Arcese Group is a Global Logistics Company, with 70 offices and 2,800 employees worldwide. Arcese Group connects the worlds and offers integrated and sustainable solutions throughout the entire supply chain. With an ever-modern fleet of 3,000 semi-trailers and 600 trucks ensures transport and service flexibility and maximum load security all over Europe.
